Magazine and newspaper publisher Ringier will concentrate its sports-related products under the management of a single editor-in-chief, with the resulting Sport-Network to operate as the largest media group in Hungary with a focus on sports and games. The group will include daily Nemzeti Sport and weekly Képes Sport as well as the online version of the former, Nemzetisport.hu. Sport-Network will be headed by the editor-in-chief of Nemzeti Sport. At the same time, Attila Kálnoki-Kiss took over this position from Tamás Szekeres, who had been in charge of the publication for five years. The restructuring is aimed to allow Ringier to manage related publications together and create synergies thereby, Ringier Managing Director Béla Papp said. This is in line with international practices, especially those of Spanish and French newspapers, he added.
